Once a near ghost town, San Miguel de Allende was "discovered" again by artists enamored with its Neoclassical architecture and dramatic mountain setting. That was back at the onset of the 20th century, though. Today, the town attracts cultural explorers from 'round the globe.
The Rosewood San Miguel de Allende blends in perfectly among the city's cobblestone streets and 17th-century villas, welcoming all comers through its ornate exterior doors. Inside, each of the 67 rooms and suites glow with character, featuring wood beam ceilings, local art and finishes, lush fabrics, and either a terrace or garden patio.
Don your darkest shades, and kick back by the pool, where poolside eats and drinks come to you at no more than a nod. The five-room spa is no slouch either, offering a gamut of personalized, indulgent services.
At sunset, head up to Luna, the rooftop tapas bar, where fresh Mexican and Spanish morsels tease and arouse the palate. For something a little more full on, try 1826 Restaurant and bar, where the region's rich culinary traditions are shown off in all their glory.
Don't get too wrapped up, though, as the city itself holds delight and magic around every corner.
